borders supplied a map that shows the increasingly hostile environment for journalist. the areas you see the darker colors, those are the most dangerous areas. and every day we are seeing violence against reporters in russia, egypt, venezuela, mexico. pretty much around the world. is enough being done to help them and what can be done? >> no, i don't think enough is being done. if you take the case of egypt, the arrest of journalists and bloggers is nothing new. the same is true of journalists in saudi arabia, we have seen some in china being arrested left right and center. what can be done, leader in the free world can speak on behalf of these judgists, raise their names in meetings condition aid to improvements in human rights and i think collectively, if we stand up for these political prisoners and journalists we cannot only see their release but the gradual reform of liberal societies. just relently i had my own experience a heated confrontation with iran's foreign minister over the imprisonment of one who has spent four years in prison for criticizing the regime and a outcry. he wa
an additional grievance to talk about on social media. theoon as he lost information environment, he began to bleed supporters. when that happened, use on acceleration of the opposition. >> the media's first focused on the terrible and tragic deaths of roughly 78 people in the square but the real story was the loss of political support by virtue of being connected to the internet. >> the me talk about the whole new prize you are offering. explain that. the whole book is about how the internet can solve global problems. how will be a factor in the do come forward to this million dollar prize. i am literally putting my money where my mouth is. >> this is your money. >> this is a personal donation. google is doing things in this area and many are, as well. there are a series of problems -- empowerment of individuals, anti-censorship, illicit trafficking in illicit networks. technologies can be used to make those worse or better. i personally want to fund the people who are trying to make the problems better for citizens. there are plenty of heroes, we want to find them all. look at africa, fo
of the white house, marking what could be the largest youth sit in on the environment in a generation. >> we are here to march to the white house and form one of the largest accessible disobedience for climate ever. hundreds of young people all came here from all over the country, 42 states, to show president obama the keystone xl is not ok and not in our national interest. than 80nts for more colleges rallied at georgetown university and then marched to the white house were some unfurled a black tarp and laid on the sidewalk to create a human oil spill. hundreds locked themselves to the white house fence before being arrested. president obama is expected to make a decision on whether to approve the keystone xl pipeline in the coming months. more on the protest and the pipeline later in the broadcast. the venezuelan president is facing a new round of protests against his government. despite the carnival holiday, thousands of opposition protesters marched and then clashed with police sunday in the capital caracas. at least 70 people have died in bed as well as worst unrest for a decade. -- at
environment we heard about how a lot of the coverage around elections wasn't particularly polarized. there are undoubtedly concerns around the future of where this is going to be. fragile my work is on states in general. fragile states tend to be fractured state. and we are seeing an increase in the fragmented and fractured media in afghanistan and the most fractured part of that getting quiteably significant injections of funding at the moment. if the last length -- it is the that isng for a state trying to chart its own national identity -- it is not necessarily a useful way of going. but as the media -- but the media is becoming ever more fractured and fragile. >> how solid do you think is the support that you expect to see in terms ofection governmental support for the concept of a free media? i know there was discussion recently about freedom of the press in afghanistan. >> again, when you compare it to other countries, afghanistan has had a remarkable -- has managed to create a remarkable space of freedom of media. this is because -- we should give credit to president karzai .
for lebanon's geostrategic environment. if the east and west agree that this must be a peace offul zone because there are important resources here, now actually moving forward on what's the economic value of this, the first thing is to figure out how to get it to market. the market is effectively europe. the original approach was or the plan was certainly to take it over land to turkey which would mean through syria as long as the war there is raging, you cannot do that. but that is the most cost effective i way. and i would indicate that part of the war for syria has to do with who's going to control the future of eastern mediterranean energy. the other way to do it which israel is exploring is whether to do it through lng, you know, whether cyprus and put it on ships or possibly from cyprus an undersea pipeline to turkey and then turkey gets it to market. so it gets into a lot of geopoll to tucks and relations. -- geopoll ticks and relations. if lebanon could get this to market and sell it, that would be -- well, the energy itself, the gas, if it's extracted, the first use of it is di
as less than important. the current command environment makes it hard to keep outside influences away from all criminal cases in a command regardless of the commander's view or the unit's view of them as commanders. removing all judicial punishment decisions from the command will keep them clear of all repercussions, including to their command, their career, and their general morale of the unit. loafing judicial punishment with commanders is not just a problem in the mishandling of sexual assault cases with the victim blaming. i have experienced, as well as others, a command environment is simply not a top -- not a top-down environment. my new -- a new commander may take command in an established structure, and the disruption of the structure regardless of how honorable their intentions can lead challenges to that command. this removal of the judicial punishments from the command would remove conflicts both to and from the commanders. this also prevents a commander from lessening the charges to whatever keeps it in the command, or at its lowest levels, either out of concern that the accuse
in school is health practices, their diet, their sleeping and also the school environment that they're in so having a school environment based on caring and respect, one where discipline is equitable and fair and not suspended for things they shouldn't be and rigorous curriculum that's based on high expectations so that means having ap classes and honors classes and enrichment programs at the schools. all help black males to achieve in school. >> james, you contend that charity is not justice and that philanthropy is not policy. what do you mean? >> well, charity is not justice is my quote. i think the question is about scale. i don't disagree with either of our guests here. i think they're right in their assessment of it and starting the conversation but the question for me is about scale and while i appreciate and applaud all of the foundations at the table and the corporations that will come to the table, i think the federal government's got to be at the table to bring to scale the things that ivory's talking about. talking about nutrition in the public school system, if you want to talk
in the environment, who knows what the next eight months will bring. >> fair enough. candidate recruiting is everything. i remember various conversati s conversations. i know on one hand you've had people that you've had conversations with, that have said, you know what, talk to me in '16 when they think it will be more democrats, knowing democratic voters, hillary clinton at the top of the ticket, the shutdown, it got you a few candidates you didn't think you would get because of the environment change in that small period of time. but have you found that you still are struggling getting some people off the fence because they'd rather run in a presidential year? >> no, not at all. in fact, you went through the list. what unifies these top-tier candidates right now is the fact that they are problem solvers. you know, we didn't have to recruit many of them. they recruited themselves because they'd had it with the shutdowns, with republican recklessness and irresponsibility. they are problem solvers in battleground districts. this is our initial rollout. there will be more. we'll have a ve
dispute settlement procedures and rules and enforcement of new obligations upon environment and labor. now, let me turn very quickly to the ttip negotiations. i have a little lesson that i can say on this because they are at an earlier stage of negotiations. though they are also important because the transatlantic economic relationship is our most significant commercial relationship. it's not our most significant trade partnership. the tpp actually is more valuable in that front, but we are talking about over a trillion dollars of two-way trade in goods and services between the united states and the european union, and over $4 trillion in foreign direct investment in each other's market. so it is a huge, huge adventure. the ttip negotiators seek to eliminate tariffs and substantial reduce nontariff barriers in trade and investment. that's a traditional part of the agenda. but as miriam noted, there's also ambitious goals with regard to coordinating or harmonizing regulatory policies affecting trade in goods and services. and that's what the biggest payoff could come very hard to estimate t
is they actually know who you are in a banking environment without having to use a password, just based on .our bio metric interaction they came to us and it was competitive. putting $3 million together and the way it works is we aggregate the investors who go on to our site and see a presentation from the company and watch a rep -- webinar, and they decide and start from $10,000 up. you can try to pick the next whatsapp. it is critical to mention you have got to build a portfolio. this stuff is so risky. you have to diversify. if you do not have 5, 10, or 15 of the companies, you're not doing it right. today ormpany started even in the last few years, do you see their equity strategy as acquisitions or going the ipo route? >> people always prefer ipo because you can build real value and continue building the company. an ipo is another funding event to raise money and better valuation so you continue to build value. most ipos are not showing several others -- selling shareholders. there are a lot of them in israel. 800 are bought for each woman goes public. we have a lot of companies traded in new
. >> would you say they are thriving? >> arriving in this environment in the environment? yes. >> it made me a bit uncomfortable, to say the least. giant tortoises do not get as excited about meal time. in fact, they can live months without food. this one is 30 years old. 30 may be the new 18 because she will live to 200. ransom spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on animal conservation. in addition, he shelters rare birds. >> this was warned blind. hand feeding him. doing very well. there.e one right this was once native to this area of the caribbean. by the time richard moved here, not a single one left. >> i think because they are so beautiful, they were killed. >> richard branson has a plan for them. >> once we have enough here, they will start having to other islands. hopefully the british virgin islands will have the flamingos and all the ponds. >> if i were an animal, i would never leave. >> don't do that. i did not like it when all of the lemurs were crawling all over me. they have nails. were climbing up my legs. >> if he is successful, and you are talking about the crimson bird,
equipment does not hold up to the harsh environment, which can represent the challenge. as john henry smith, one man is trying to eliminate one part of the challenge. >> i was watching a heartbreaking news story about children in war zones and it explained the six left therapy to bring them back to humanity was just to play. simple, unstructured play. >> that was all the inspiration tim janeghan needed. he knew there were programs sending soccer balls to communities, but he knew they didn't last long in the harsh playing field found in those communities. that's when he imagined a solution. >> to make a ball for the children that would not go flat. they could play and get the therapy. >> tim janeghan is a lyricist, who worked with a number of famous musicians, including siting. when he mentioned the idea to sting, he not only liked the idea, he offered to fund the research and design phase of developing the ball. >> let this be so successful that i can do for someone else what he did for me some day. it was, you know, i still get emotional when i think about it. >> 11 months, two tries lair,
short. the only difference is that i grew up in environment that was a little bit more forgiving so when i made a mistake the consequences were not as severe. >> security forces in venezuela that v been using to break up the student protests. meantime, the president has declared an early start to the week-long public holiday. it is an attempt to clearly end. we have more. >> there will be no carnival this year for protesters. earlier this week, he announced the carnival weekend would start two days early and the break many saw as an attempt to weaken. [speaking in native tongue] >> people are here to present. it would be disrespectful for those who have fallen and we are here to she that nothing will stop us. >> the dem strags in caracas started out peacefully. they ended once again in crashes amid a big crowd of tear gas. meanwhile, the supporters rallied on the other side of the capital and took the opportunity to attack their opponents. >> we're on the street for peace and happiness and lake those in the east of the city, there are from the wst, we're happy and peaceful. >> protests b
, international correspondents are not usually jailed. >> no, we've seen them in different environments around the world. in china there has been a crackdown on foreign reporters, and even in russia in this past year. but open countries it's less common. this is a worrying signal by egypt. they are going to go after foreign reporters. in this case it's one of the main areas to get out news and information. it's a particular concern to us. >> michael posener, what do you make of it? egypt has been a major recipient of american aid but no amount of jay carney today at the white house briefing talking about these reporters is going to make egypt simply say, okay, fellas, go and sin no more. >> yeah, i think egypt is a critically important country at a have dangerous moment right now. it's not just your four journalists among dozens that have been arrested and are being held. civil society, human rights activists, it's almost impossible to be critical of the government now even on things how they drafted the constitution without coming under the government's wrath. egypt is the most important coun
that is part of our environment, utilizing that in a way that generates an electricity and does it in a benign way, is a very strong cornerstone advanced by the president in this effort. also the $4. 2 billion he brings forth to provide for innovation and create new outcomes for energy purposes, not only with efficiency and generation but the transmission of that energy supply and looking at efforts to expand and make permanent the production tax credits that are so important for renewable energy in this country. so those are two good, very valuable investments. let me then just highlight a few others that i believe will be a progress i outcome if we are to accept this notion here in congress. one would be to address the clean energy research program and the president does that with a major down payment for clean energy research, he also addresses the advanced research project agency in the energy capacity, acronymed out at arpa-e. it commits a very laser sharp focus on research as it relates to innovation in the energy sector. will all those outcomes be successful? perhaps not. in fact, the c
in the government going around and questioning climate change. this is what the environment secretary says -- people get very emotional about it. people should accept the climate has been changing for centuries. the energy minister went on about climate change. -- i haven'ting to had time to get into the climate change debate. [laughter] he is the energy minister, mr. speaker. as a happy that there are climate change deniers in his government that is he happy that there are climate change deniers in his government? >> i praise him for his commitment to climate change. i like the new style. i think this is much more refreshing. his government has a solid track record of cutting carbon and investing in nuclear. the biggest energy program we have seen in this country for the first time in a long time we are on track to the renewable target. let's congratulate him on the record on the energy environment. >> the whole country would have heard they cannot answer the question about whether you need to believe in man-made climate change to be part of his government. part to be ac matter of individual consci
. the project would be bad for the environment. in january the u.s. state department released a report saying it would have little environmental impact. >> it is moving on a busy highway between houston and dallas, texas after a highway was turned into a ice skating rink. causing gridlock on the 30 mile stretch of the highway for about 16 hours. >> people stuck in their cars for 14 hours. we had people sleep in the parking lot in their cars because there was no place to go. there were no hotel rooms left. >> traffic began moving late last night. law enforcement urging caution and to watch out for the black ice. >> the weather continues to be a big story across the country. the snow may be gone but freezing temperatures they are not. >> another blast of arctic air celting across half of occur ur country. >> the temperatures seeing well below average across the midwest the plains ants into the northeast. that has been a trend for the last several months. the cold arctic blast settling in. the current windchill temperatures as you head out the door this morning staying below zero in the teens in
cooperation on the economy, security, defense, and the environment, but those ties are now being tested. well let's get more now from abdul, he is a professor of political science at the uae university, and joins us via skype from dubai. thank you for being with us. this does seem like a very public move in a very conservative region. is there any significant importance to the timing of this decision to withdraw the envoys? >> yeah, this is definitely more than brotherly quarrel here. this is serious. we have not seen anything like this in the 33 years of the gcc, and this time around, you know, we were all surprised that three of the gcc's states decided to pull their ambassador. although it was very clear that they were annoyed towards qatar, very angry -- >> what is behind the anger. what is behind this avowance and anger? >> -- very serious move. >> sorry, you probably didn't hear my question. if you could explain what is behind this anger and annoyance towards qatar? i believe we may have just lost our guest there. abdul. unfortunately we will try, though to get him back on skype though.
environment to work in. we should point out, these three individuals, these al jazeera journalists are among thousands of protesters, activists and other journalists who are facing a similar ordeal many say it's trials like this and other detentions that are a troubling sign that egypt is going back to a repressive, authoritative state instead of going towards fulfilling the promises of the 2011 revolution. >> syrian government forces are waging a campaign of siege warfare and starvation against civilians as part of the military campaign against rebel fighters. >> that's among the findings of a u.n.-mandated independent report which has just been released. the investigation, catalogue of the suffering 250,000 people who are besieged across syria, government forces were accused of denying basic aid in order to force people to choose between surrender and stashation. war crimes have been committed by opposition groups. more from geneva >> reporter: this is that report. 7th report of the independent international commission on inquiry on syria since that commission was set up by the u.n. in 201
in that environment was not correcting the problem. it was enhancing the problem. >> reporter: they hemmed to write georgia's juvenile laws. they say they're better off being rehabilitated in their home where rather than being influenced by older hardened offenders. >> what we found out a lot of these children coming into the system were not really bad children. they were doing dumb things. so we wanted to find a better way of treating them under the local level. >> reporter: georgia is following states like texas and louisiana by diverting juveniles to community-based programs. >> runaway or possession of alcohol, rather than having those children detained, is there there are interventions that will happen between the youth and specific state agencies to get to the underlying cause. >> reporter: a new commission is in charge of making sure that the programs are consistent and effective scenario across the s. the state also believes they will save a lot of money in this change. the community based programs the governor said will cut the costs to $3,000 a year. the laws will prevents judges from acc
environment requires us to requirementize and make difficult choices. some we must make now. >> despite the problems and the cost overruns, the military has no plans to scrap the f35. russia and china are developing fighters that will outgun and outfly the u.s. fleet. the question is whether the pentagon can make good on the promise of a jet that can tackle all threats in all conditions. >> the budget proposal calls for retiring the u2 spy plan for one controlled remotely. >> a pregnant woman apparently drove into the water, driving a minnie van with her three children, ages 10, 9 and 3. life guards and other beach goers rushed in. they pulled all for to safety before the van was submerged by the waves. one of the children told rescue areas, "mummy is trying to kill us, please help." the mother was incoherent, uncooperative. she is undergoing psychiatric evaluation, the children have been placed in protective custody. >> tex joons have gone to the polls. greg abbott peat out eight other candidates, facing off against wendy davis. she is the first female nom ni since ann richards in 1994
and greenpeace cofounder patrick moore. he made these comments before the senate environment and public works committee. he left greenpeace because he says that group became more interested in politics than the environment. what an announcement from him. >>> men who wait too long to become fathers could put their children at greater risk of developing mental health problems. that's according to a new study that followed more than 2.5 million men for 25 years. researchers found a child born to a 45-year-old father compared to a 24-year-old dad was three times more likely to have autism, 13 times more likely to have adhd, 25 times more likely to be bipolar and twice as likely to have schizophrenia. this is video you have to see to believe. two guys in those wing suits flying past christ the redeemer statue in britain. look at this. the two daredevils making that jump from about 6,500 feet. they landed safely. and what was the first thing they did? what do you think? what do you think? >> they prayed. >> drank a beer. look at that. >> they earned it. >> how close they get. nerve wracking. see yo
, look, in a hyper partisan environment where he has to run for re-election, an issue like this can be polarized. any issue around race, as you know, wolf, sends people to their full rise corners. the last thing the president wants to do when he's running for re-election is to have a country more polarized. i think the beauty of this time now is you can have more risky conversations that are important for moving this country forward right now in his second term. so i'm thankful that he did. >> i want to play another excerpt from the president's powerful speech. cornell and don, both of you listen to this. >> no excuses. government and philanthropy, faith-based communities, we've got to help you knock down some of the barriers that you experience. that's what we're here for. but you've got responsibilities, too. and i know you can meet the challenge. many of you already are, if you make the effort. it may be hard, but you will have to reject the cynicism that the circumstances of your birth or societies injustices necessarily defines you and your future. it will take courage but you'
agree that an environment of low rates, low interest rates, especially when it p prevails for a long time, and we have had a long period of low interest rates can give rise to behavior that poses threats to financial stability. and therefore we need to be looking at that very carefully. and we are doing so in a very thorough way, i believe. there are a number of things that we are monitoring. measures of asset prices and whether or not they appear to be diverging from historical norms. namely it's hard but trying to spot any asset price bubbles that might be emerging. we're looking at leverage, which build up in leverage can be very dangerous to the financial system and pose stability risks. we're looking at trends in leverage. we're looking at credit growth to see whether or not that has potentially worrisome trends. in addition to that we're looking the particularly through the stress tests at financial institutions and a low interest rate environment. we have to worry about whether or not they're appropriately dealing with interest rate risk ls. we have been looking at that and, i
to incentives and health systems incentive changes, to less expensive environments that include clinics and home care. we're in the midst of a big transition overall. >> what is it that your company does exactly when you go in and try and streamline things? >> we're a performance improvement company that focuses on cost, in other words, how you procure all products. we have a $5 billion procurement business that helps hospitals buy what they buy, more importantly, how they use the products. there's a best practice out there but it's not used across the country. we take the process to what we know as best practices. >> you're trying to get people paid quicker, right? i mean, there's a million places to attack. are there too many -- what are your two or three primary ways of doing it? you can get bogged down being all things to all people. >> hospitals aline are over a trillion dollars vertically integrated in 5,000 locations, all very complex and all very different. we focus on cost reduction, clinical integration and payment and price integration so that what's being paid for the services render
. this keeps -- >> this is holding the environment hostage. >> and we have seen this before where people sit in trees and things like that. look, this keystone pipeline is such a no-brainer, everybody with the exception of the president and these people -- >> unions want it. >> for the jobs created. president obama0s own state department issued a report, gaving it the okay. this has been under study for six years and every single tied study says the environmental impact will be -- transporting the oil and national gas via train, truck, other ways, will actually -- >> you don't want to -- they're not tying themselves to the white house fence, they're loyal and speak for many who are environmental conscious and thigh think this pipeline is nuts. so the president has been delay, delay, delay, keep the union guys happen they might open it up and get the jobs going, and the environmentalists. but you can only wait this out so lodge it's been five years. >> it's ridiculous at this point. every study has come back saying the environmental impact will be minimal. and transcanada will not wait foreve
to their moneys stashed in british banks, that would become a very different russian environment. now they're walking in the streets happy and screaming. you know, ukraine is russia, or crimea is russia. i would like to see russia completely closed. it is not the cold war, but if the borders are closed for other reasons, how popular will putin become with grandiose strategies. >> certainly once you start messing with people's money, they take it very personally. lawrence, a question i had about this is, you know, there are other actors on the world stage who are like in syria, like karzai, who's been particularly difficult. how does the way that president obama handles this situation impact, you know -- iran is another one. what are these world leaders looking for? >> well, i think all of these are interrelated. while we want to penalize putin for doing this, you need his help both in syria and eastern. without the russians putting the sanctions on iran, we would not be at the negotiating table. i think you have to keep these things in mind. your other guests would know this. the soviets c
the russian border where they worried their way of life is under threat. >>> plus china's choking environment, smog reaching critical levels. and a change in athletic history. we have more next. we are not meant to be your first choice for entertainment. al jazeera america. we understand that every news story begins and ends with people. >> the efforts are focused on rescuing stranded residents. >> we pursue that story beyond the headline, pass the spokesperson, to the streets. >> thousands of riot police deployed across the capital. >> we put all of our global resources behind every story. >> it is a scene of utter devastation. >> and follow it no matter where it leads - all the way to you. al jazeera america, take a new look at news. >> welcome back to the top stories here on al jazeera. russia has promised to protect its naval fleet in southern ukraine. thprotests have continued into turkey for a second day over a corruption scandal involving the prime minister. turkey's president signed a new law tightening the government's grip on the judiciary which has been investigating claims of corr
total vehicl vehicle . the week wage environment is also a factor here. what is the bloomberg consensus forecast? >> we are expecting a 15.4 million pace of sales. as critical. at the end of january, we had inventory on the market. sustainable set around 65. one of the reasons we had the slowdown in production was not because of the weather. it has to do with the balance of supply. we need to see the pace of sales pick up substantially. my sense here is that the weather will inhibit that. eventually the automakers will have to put in some pretty big extensions to clear those inventories out. imagine, day before march, in april, will that number spike up a little? when people start getting tax returns back. >> that's what we are expecting. you'll get a little more cash on hand. this is the year many middle-income americans are going to see the tax on their interest reduced. they may get a little less. >> about 30 seconds left. non-manufacturing data. at richmond fed survey, what's a likely to tell us? >> it remains flat. retail is taking it on the chin. at thewill probably stay level. >>
into cyclicals as we go forward at a low inflationary environment with the fed struggling. sgr >> financials were getting a little bit of a bid. maybe it was a rotation out of the over valued names. want to go back to the main point as we head into the close close. the dow is off almost 250 points. >> bear in mind, 1848 for ages, for weeks and weeks we were trying to break through the new highs, 1848. stutter steps, we finally got there then 1850 would sas resis. finally yesterday we were decisively over that. you get these stutter steps up and back. it's not -- it hasn't been a straight line up but so far since the end of january, we've been doing pretty well. february was a great month. >> the market has been pretty much straight up for the last couple weeks after that big pullback earlier this year, and i think we may be in for some more jitters. i agree with my colleagues here that, you know, some of it has to do with the weekend and the news in the ukraine, but i think there's a lot of geopolitical uncertainty. 21 elections coming up. there may be some excuses for a little pullback. >> subpr
to improve the environment that these children are living in and contain millions nutrition. that becomes more difficult as new syrian refugees arrive in lebanon every day. >> still to come in this news our we'll have all the sports news. could there be trouble for world number one tiger woods. details a little later. >> i wasn't in control of my golf ball coming down the stretch. an awkward distance and then a couple of awkward lies, and couldn't make birdie. it's been a decent week. >> australia remain in control of the third and deciding test against south african declaring overnight on 494-7. australian bowlers have been doing the damage. held south africa at 287. the aussies are now back at their second inning. >>> sri lanka in the final for the asia cup. sri lanka post 253-6 for their 50 over. and had beaten host benly--two days ago, and they're bowled all out at 124 runs. >>> just after a month after stepping down as england coach and given a new role with the country elite coaching. it comes a day after england leveled their one day series against west indies. they bowled ow all o
into the wrong hands in the middle of a very volatile security environment? >> mr. chairman, in lebanon, much as we have in many other countries, we have an office of defense cooperation in beirut. their primary purpose truly is to ensure that we have the appropriate safeguards, and that were performing the appropriate end-user monitoring is what we call it when we provide foreign military sales of equipment, partner nations. so our u.s. personnel in the office of defense cooperation in beirut will do that and enhance end-user monitoring to ensure that that equipment is both accounted for and being used properly. >> i found it interesting in the dialogue with the lebanese armed forces their take on the saudi arabia and french potential for receipt of saudi arabia and assistance to purchase french military assets. they said they liked the was equipment a lot better, basically is what the lebanese armed forces was saying. but i gather from your testimony, general, you do like the more partners the better, the more systems the better. you don't find that saudi arabia provision of 3 billion to pu
